Electric Distribution

CoBank offers a broad range of competitively priced, flexible loan programs, leasing services and other financial services that enable electric cooperatives to fulfill their mission of providing reliable power to rural communities.

Industry Expertise

Today, over 75% of electric distribution, transmission and generation cooperatives work with CoBank for their banking and financial needs. We finance electric cooperative projects of all kinds, including smart grid technology, retail broadband, DER investment, renewables, electric vehicles and more. We also have extensive experience working in coordination with government loan programs and facilitating the process on behalf of our customers.

Fiber has dramatically changed our cooperative’s financial position for the better, and leasing our broadband assets through CoBank Farm Credit Leasing has given us a great deal of financial flexibility as we continue to deliver value to our expanding customer base.

– Jim Bagley, CEO, United Electric Cooperative
